With the help of over 150 volunteers in East Hawaii Island, we currenly we reach approximately 4,000 students annually. The biggest obstacle to reaching the other 75% of students in our area is access to volunteers.
Providing JA in an elementary or middle school class is very easy and doesn't take much time. For each grade level JA provides a ciriculum of five complete 45-minute lesson plans wtih age-appropriate hands-on activities. If you can read, and if you like kids, you can do it!
